Purple Penguins is Owned and Operated by Sherene "Shaz" Torley Poezyn. 

It began as a mobile swim school, because I lived in a complex and as a

swim instructor with no pool, I needed to make a plan. I drove to my clients

homes, but as time went on and I got busier, I realised that this was no

longer going to work as a business.

My amazing husband supported my dream and took the plunge with me

and we bought a home with a pool. PURPLE PENGUINS finally had a

home and after several renovations, officially opened July 2014.

As a Mom to twin daughters, I know how important it is to teach our children this life saving skill. It is not only a requirement for schools, but is also a confidence builder. It is a sport you can do for the rest of your life and also opens up options to many other sports too. As a parent though, I wasn't always thinking that far ahead, my thoughts were for the next pool party and how would my children cope!

At Purple Penguins we teach Todswim, Learn 2 Swim, Adult Swim, assist with Stroke correction, we participate in Development Galas and Annual Swimmers Award Days which are held by Cape Metro Aquatics. We teach from 12 months to 99 yrs, we won't hold you back, if you don't!

I have always had a passion for swimming and hope to pass this onto the learners that come through our doors.
